A total of 14 doctors and two technicians of JNIMS tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday.
The JNIMS hospital accident and trauma centre (ATC) has been shut for 48 hours after a patient brought to the centre tested positive along with his son on Monday.
JNIMS medical superintendent professor T Rajen Singh said the patient was having symptoms of COVID-19. Hence, the patient was kept isolated to prevent spread of the disease to other patients of ATC.
The attitude shown by “irresponsible doctors” is highly condemnable and inhumane. The authority concerned should take immediate action against those doctors who are involved in the case, it stated
